Mimaki Engineering Co., Ltd, has released its Pure Clear ink called “MH-110PCL” for use with the Mimaki UV-curable full-color 3D inkjet printer “3DUJ-553.” The pure clear ink is a product reducing the yellowish tint evident in the conventional “MH-100CL” clear ink, enabling a more clear-cut, transparent modeling, as explained by Mimaki’s team..
According to the company, the ink is capable of depicting the clear expressions as intended by designers and architects, which is expected to be used in product design for home appliances and cosmetics, as well as in design mock-ups and design verification for industrial products. It is also suitable for use in medical and architectural models requiring visualization to confirm internal structures. In the field of 3DCG design, the ink is eligible for use in the expression of artworks, etc.
As with the conventional “MH-100CL” clear ink, the pure clear “MH-110PCL” ink is not only limited to the expression of transparency but can also be combined with color inks (cyan, magenta, yellow and black) for the reproduction of translucent color (transparent with color) expressions. Accordingly, the Mimaki 3D printer “3DUJ-553,” featuring the “full color modeling capability with more than 10 million colors,” allows for use in designs emphasizing a broader range of colors and visuals than ever before with the addition of the clear and translucent color expressions enabled by the transparent pure clear ink “MH-110PCL.”
MH-110PCL is ideal for the expression of transparent parts required in product design and other fields. In addition to transparent expression using clear ink individually, translucent color (transparent with added color) output combining clear ink and color ink expands the range of design expression.
